Amita Health Half Marathon and 5K – POSTPONED The AMITA Health Bolingbrook St. Paddy’s Half Marathon & 5K has been postponed to a later date in the year yet to be determined. Out of an abundance of caution for race participants, volunteers, and spectators, this decision has been made together with village officials, sponsors and race management taking guidance from health officials regarding limiting large public gatherings to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.
We are working closely with village officials and sponsors to try and establish a revised event date by this Friday, March 13th, end of day. While the event will still happen this year, we want to provide you multiple options so you can choose what works best for you.
As you are already registered for the event, your registration will automatically be transferred to the new event date and you do not need to do anything.
When we send out an email communicating the revised 2020 event date we will also include instructions for how to transfer to next year’s March 14, 2021 event. Your 2021 registration will include the 2020 quarter zip up, 2021 finisher medal and 2021 finisher pint glass.
In addition to the above options, we encourage you to race this weekend virtually. You are all trained up so you can run the distance, on your own, on a route of your choosing. Once you have completed the distance, fill out the form HERE to have your race result added to the online virtual run results board. If you run the virtual race you will still be able to run this year’s postponed event or transfer to next year’s event as well.
You will be able to pick up your gear at the packet pick up of the new event date or at the 2021 event packet pick up if you choose to run next year.
If you would like to get your quarter zip now, you can get it at Road Runner Sports, 2555 W 75th St, Naperville, IL 60540 on Sunday, March 15th from 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM.
We thank you for your understanding that in this time of uncertainty we are working to provide you with as many options as we are able.
